About This Deal
Since 1990, The Shade Tree has grown into one of Nevada's largest shelters. It operates 24 hours a day to provide ongoing free assistance to southern Nevadans in need, including women and children experiencing domestic abuse and homelessness, female veterans, senior citizens experiencing elder abuse, and those with physical disabilities. The shelter's 364 permanent beds offer more than 100,000 nights of shelter each year, and the 38,000-square-foot facility houses several programs and services that assist women in achieving self-reliance, including job-development, life-skills, and housing-assistance programs.
The Shade Tree provides three full meals every day to the women and children staying in its shelter, and in the 2009–2010 fiscal year the organization's kitchen served more than 109,000 meals. Since it provides meals free of charge, The Shade Tree relies upon donations and funding raised from outside sources to cover the cost of food. The number of women and children seeking shelter at The Shade Tree has risen in recent years, and the organization requires additional funds to continue to offer meals to all those who stay at the shelter.
Join G-Team and donate $10 to help The Shade Tree provide meals to women and children experiencing domestic abuse and homelessness. If G-Team members raise $400, then The Shade Tree can provide 320 meals to women and children staying at the shelter. Each additional $10 raised will purchase eight more meals for those assisted by The Shade Tree.
Unlike traditional Groupon deals, G-Team campaigns typically don't offer you a "discount" or "savings." So "buyer" beware—when you click "Buy" to donate your time or money to a worthwhile G-Team cause, the only discount you may receive is 100 percent off free, priceless karma. Read more about G-Team.
